When it comes to commercial projects, granite is not a luxury... it's a necessity! None of us appreciate a product that wears out prematurely before we have received the benefit of invested time, energy and money. Conversely, we do appreciate a product that meets and exceeds our expectations. Granite is just such a product.
I have been selling granite for more than a dozen years and have experienced granite's incredibly high levels of customer satisfaction due to its beauty and durability. Benson Stone Company has a wonderful testimony right in our store. The HearthRock Café service counter is made of African Red granite. Over 1,000 customers a week are served on that counter. Multiply that by the two years that the café has been open, and that computes to more than 104,000 trays, food items, drinks, etc., passing across the granite top and it still looks brand new. The counter top is approximately 32" x 79", but the actual service area is 32" x 36". This is a lot of traffic in a very small area. The café tables also sport various types of granite, and they also look as good as the day they were installed.
